The regulations contained in the Compliance Guideline are internal rules to ensure compliance with official regulations relating to securities and stock markets.
In order to prevent insider dealings or unlawful disclosure of inside information, Austrian Post has introduced binding, Group-wide compliance guidelines in line with currently valid European and Austrian capital market regulations and the Compliance for Issuers Ordinance of the Financial Market Authority. The Compliance Officer of the Austrian Post Group monitors adherence to these guidelines and keeps up-to-date insider lists. Austrian Post is developing its compliance organisation above and beyond its legal obligations with the goal of establishing an integrated, Group-wide compliance management system. In addition to ensuring adherence to the binding capital market regulations, this system is designed to promote the lawful and guideline-compliant behaviour of employees and provide support by implementing specific measures. The awareness and understanding of compliance requirements are promoted and updated by means of regular training given to those employees who are subject to these requirements.
Directors’ dealings are always disclosed publicly at www.post.at/ir in accordance with legal regulations and the rules contained in the Austrian Corporate Governance Code (C-Rule 73).
